I love ///M floor mats!!!

I know this sounds stupid, but the M mats in my car dont have any velcro, snaps, etc to stay in place so they slide around all the time. Its semi dangerous when driving let alone on an M car???

My previous M's had nice mats that stayed in place.

Maybe I got some cheap mats or something? They have the M logo on them and look OEM

I see cost cutting all over the car vs. the E46 but having floor mats that slide around? Come on bmw.... that's bad

Dude, you should have gotten two little velcro plastic pieces that need to be screwed into the floor board. The mats should attach via velcro to these pieces....sounds like you dont have em

The OEM mats that came with my car has an ///M3 logo and not just a plain ///M logo. My dealer includes it with all their deliveries even though BMW technically doesn't include it in the car. It has velcro fasteners for the driver's side and stays in place no problem. Perhaps your dealer forgot to install the velcro fastener? It's a fastener that screws/snaps into a hole on the floor carpet, and there are two of them for the driver's side.

cOunt yourselves lucky that you received ///M mats at all. We just get the standard black BMW mats in Australia.

My dealer told me they aren't even an option here..

I have 2 velcro circle fasteners under only my driver's side m3 matt, not the remaining 3 matts.

My e46 M3 came with the velcro under all 4 matts.

On the E92, only the driver's side mat has the velcro fasteners. Mine came like that and to confirm, my friend who bought his E92 from a different dealer that didn't include mats, had to buy a set on his own - and those arrived in a sealed box directly from parts distribution - and they included only two velcro fasters for the driver's side mat.

Am I the only one that this bothers? It always has. The point of floor mats is to protect your carpet which can't easily be replaced. Why protect $100 floor mats with crappy looking "all weather" ones? When your floor mats wear out buy new ones. Just wondering if I am the only one that feels this way?

My E90 m3 Sedan only came with driver side, two round valcro things. And that was it, others are just laying in their spots. havn't seen them move much when driving or having some seat in passenger seat, never had back passengers though.
